Mahindra & Mahindra introduced the six-seater version of the XUV700 in India earlier this year, along with other updates. The homegrown manufacturer has regularly expanded the range of its models. The brand recently introduced the compact SUV XUV 3XO, the facelifted version of the XUV300, and now the XUV700 portfolio has been strengthened with the addition of a new seven-seater variant.

The The SUV currently has a starting price of around Rs. 14 lakh for the MX petrol MT five-seater and it goes all the way up to Rs. 27 lakh for the top-end AX7 Luxury Pack diesel AT (both prices, ex-showroom).

The entry-level MX diesel MT five-seater is priced at Rs. 14.60 lakh (ex-showroom) and the newly arrived MX diesel MT seven-seater is priced at Rs. 40,000 more expensive – which undermines both Safari and Hector Plus. At Rs. 15 lakh (ex-showroom), and an on-road price of approximately Rs. 18.82 lakh, it is a no-brainer for many family customers who are on a budget and considering the practical benefits it offers.

The Mahindra XUV700 MX seven-seater is cheaper than the comparable AX3 seven-seater by around Rs. 3 lakh, but the latter is almost 30 hp more powerful.

The new variant may also soon get the 2.0L petrol engine. The MX seven-seater diesel MT is available in five color schemes namely Everest white, Midnight black, Dazzling red, Red rage and Napoli Black, and the features list is identical to that of its five-seater MX sibling. It comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and follow-me-home headlights.

Other highlights include a seven-inch MID, tilt steering wheel, adjustable headrests, power door mirrors, USB charging ports, a four-speaker audio system, center armrest with storage, AC vents for the last row, 60:40 one-touch rocker function and much more. A few days ago, Mahindra introduced the Blaze Edition of the XUV700.

Based on the AX7 L top version, the limited edition gets a new matte red color scheme. Following on from the XUV 3XO, Mahindra plans to launch the five-door Thar in August 2024, which is likely to be called Thar Armada.
